The Global Mine Action Programme 3 (GMAP3) is due to begin in 2022 and we are working towards finalising funding and country allocation and hope to share our plans for the programme in due course.

Demining work will continue to save lives across the world and as one of the founding signatories to the 1997 Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention and a leading supporter of mine action, we will continue to work towards ending the use of landmines and cluster munitions.
